“ACG Capsules is one of the largest capsule manufacturers in the world, servicing pharmaceutical and nutraceutical customers in more than 100 countries,” said Selwyn Noronha, CEO ACG Capsules. “The company already has a significant presence in LATAM, and following this investment, ACG will further be able to meet the growing requirements of the region.”

“ACG is extremely proud of this new facility, which demonstrates our long-term commitment to Brazil. As the fifth largest pharmaceutical market in the world, Brazil is a key strategic one for ACG. And the benefit of having local manufacturing will certainly strengthen ties with our customers,” commented Roberson Petrungaro, commercial director-LATAM, ACG Capsules.
